Nationalist leader says Scots tricked out of independence

MANCHESTER England (Reuters) Defeated Scottish nationalist chief Alex Salmond accused Britain's political leaders on Sunday of tricking Scots out of independence after a dispute about how and when to give them more powers. Salmond, who is stepping down as leader of the proindependence Scottish National Party (SNP) after failing to persuade Scots to leave the United Kingdom, accused Britain's three main political parties of winning last Thursday's referendum by 5545 percent by making a false promise of new powers. "I think the vow was something cooked up in desperation for the last few days of the campaign and I think everyone in Scotland now realises that," said Salmond, referring to a pledge by Prime Minister David Cameron and other leaders before the vote to rapidly expand Scottish autonomy in the event of a "No" #facebook #United States #China #Business #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #conservatives

Afghan election body names exfinance minister Ghani presidentelect

KABUL (Reuters) Afghanistan's election commission declared former finance minister Ashraf Ghani as the warravaged country's presidentelect on Sunday after an acrimonious dispute over fraud, but did not give the final vote tally after a U.N.monitory audit. The announcement came hours after Ghani and rival, Abdullah Abdullah, signed a powersharing agreement to end two months of bitter wrangling over accusations of fraud that undermined confidence in the election and emboldened the Taliban insurgency at a crucial time as most foreign troops prepare to leave #Politics #Business #Brazil #Arabic #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Election #Mexico #opinion

Turkey says no ransom paid for release of hostages held by Islamic State

ISTANBUL (Reuters) President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday no ransom had been paid for the release of Turkish hostages held by Islamic State but he declined to be drawn on whether their release freed Turkey's hand to take a more active stance against the insurgents. Turkish intelligence agents brought 46 hostages seized by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq back to Turkey on Saturday after more than three months in captivity, in what Erdogan described as a covert rescue operation. #facebook #India #China #Brazil #Technology #France #Security #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion
